Fishing at Kentucky Lake, Lake Barkley - An Overview

Together, Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley form the largest body of water between the Great Lakes and the Gulf of Mexico.  The lakes are connected by a free-flowing canal near the dams at Grand Rivers.

These lakes produce some of the best bass fishing anywhere in the United States.  Catching these sport fish makes for a great time.  Crappie are legendary on Kentucky Lake when the spawn hits, usually in April.  These delicious-tasting fish can be found bedding in the spring in shallow waters of bays and in brush piles.

Bluegill typically get active along the banks during May and are a blast to catch with the kiddos.  Catfish is also very common in the lakes with catches coming in year round.
